Re: Will AC ever get a YYC base?

If AC really wanted to put the screws to WJ, opening a Calgary base would be a prime way to do it. I bet a couple hundred pilots would leave for AC if it meant they would get to stay in Calgary.

Re: Question regarding, manifests, airlines and regulations. Boarded a plane, fell asleep and missed my stop

I’m going to venture a guess that you’re basically SOL. It’s sorta like a bus stop. If you miss your stop, it’s not the transit company’s fault. Maybe in the future set an alarm or something? Or if you’re a really deep sleeper ask the flight attendant to wake you at your station before you nod off. ...

Yeah I remember bombing around the arctic NDB to NDB trying to correct your track in a 20 knot gusty crosswind in a King Air. Some of the most fun I’ve ever had in an airplane!

737 wings are so floppy anyways. They bounce up and down like three feet when just taxiing around!
Trolling are we? That wins the most retarded statement of the year, hands down. :prayer: watch a B52 takeoff and see what wing flex is really like.
You think stating a fact is retarded? :roll:

Re: Typical New Hire RP Schedule.

That's a downer. I know we went to a short course briefly maybe 5 or so years ago to reduce training footprints, but I understood we were back to the full FO course for RPs. If you do a full course with a group 1 ride on the MTV and an LOE, it should be a full type rating. Is it just some checkers ...

Yikes. You would think the system would catch up to him sooner or later with all of those failures :rolleyes:
Not when the system is flawed and people these days are hired in order to meet some sort of “diversity” quota instead of being hired based on their credentials and ability.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here, but CanWest on the medevac side is one of the best kept secrets in the 704 industry. Captains are making just about $100K/yr, on call half the year, and of that you probably only actually work 1/2 the time. If Medicine Hat, Calgary, Peace River or Edmonton interests ...
